Kabe-cho, Asakita Ward, Hiroshima City
Kabe-cho had been a center of industry, culture, transportation, and economic activity since pre-modern times, with a large population engaged in commerce, because it was an important juncture on the route connecting Sanin and Sanyo (Sea of Japan side and Seto Inland Sea side of Chugoku region). The opening part of the footage shows the home of the recorder, who dealt in fertilizers. The style of the townhouse is thought to date from the second half or late Edo period. Kabe-cho today retains many of its old townhouses, temples, shrines, and monuments, and hosts walking tours and similar events for their appreciation.
